If you click on the link below, you will see an image of the local universe.
Here "local" refers to those galaxies that are moving relative to
ourselves at a speed less than 8,000 KM/sec. This implies that you see will much of the
visible universe. We don't know how far the universe reaches beyond the visible.

This image is a single frame taken from a movie to which a link was provided in an earlier
posting on this forum. The movie was in the public domain - no copyright - so I don't
believe copying single frames from it will be an issue.

[Our Universe]

The lines represent the movement of many galaxies in our visible universe. If you look
carefully just right of center of the image, you will see a tiny sphere that represents
the Milky Way - Our galaxy.

Towards the left edge of the image is the gravitational anomaly called The Great Attractor.
Much of our universe seems to be getting sucked towards this anomaly. What happened here?
Is this the spot God intended as the origin of the next big bang? Or did He accidentally
divide gravity by zero here?

Either way, a few billion years from now, we all seem destined to be sucked into an unpredictable
future in this anomaly. Most probably we will face severe gravitational tidal forces, that
will first string us out into molecules, then the molecules into atoms, the atoms into a plasma
of particles and lastly the particles into long thin strings - of what?

Luckily I will be pushing up the daisies long before then, but what about our progeny? Will
they have the technology to travel through a wormhole to another universe in time? But considering
the rate at which our government is cutting the space budget, NASA will be long gone and
the USA will no longer have space ships. Luckily there is always China to save our bacon.
Maybe they will have the technology?

Question: Will you buy a ticket to another universe on a starship stamped "Made in China"?
